Does On Center support running its products on Windows 10? Windows 11? Windows 365 (Cloud)?


Windows 10, Yes.

Windows 11, OST, is fully compatible with Windows 11. Quick Bid 4.99.05 has not been tested/certified, yet.

Windows 365, probably, but they have not been tested/certified, yet.

Caution - Upgrading Windows Version

There are a few important things we feel it is prudent to share with you:

  • Upgrading an operating system should be done only with your IT department's guidance. If you do not have an IT department, please contact Technical Support before installing an operating system upgrade (Windows 7 to 8, 8 to 10, 8 or 10 to 11, etc.) so we can help you plan the upgrade to ensure your On Center software is compatible with Windows 10 and will function post-upgrade.
  • We recommend that you deactivate and uninstall On-Screen Takeoff/Digital Production Control and Quick Bid before upgrading your operating system. If the software is installed when the upgrade happens, it may become unusable after the upgrade and you will not be able to uninstall/repair it. Also, please remember, only versions that are tested and approved for installation on Windows 10 are expected to work properly on that operating system. (See our Sunsetting Policy under Related Articles). 
  • After the Windows version upgrade is complete, sign in to your MyOnCenter account where you can download and install the new versions of OST/QB (assuming you are due a version compatible with the new operating system).
  • Before installing any version of On-Screen Takeoff or Quick Bid, ensure your license supports the new version. Contact our Technical Support team for assistance.

Windows 10

Windows 10 is certified supported for current versions of On-Screen Takeoff and Quick Bid.

On-Screen Takeoff/Digital Production Control v.3.93 and newer and Quick Bid v.4.95 and newer are Windows 10 ready. 

See Related Articles for System Requirements and Windows version compatibility information. 

Versions of OST/DPC/QB older than v.3.93/4.95 are not supported on Windows 10. Only clients who are under a current maintenance agreement as of 8/6/2015 with On Center Software are eligible for Windows 10 compatible versions (OST 3.93, DPC 3.93, QB 4.95). If you need to renew your maintenance, please contact our Customer Success Team at 866-627-6246 for assistance.

Windows 11

11/15/2021 - We have completed certification testing for On-Screen Takeoff (the current release as of 4/27/2022) using Access-type databases only. 

We are continuing to work on certifying SQL 2019, and then can test SQL with On-Screen Takeoff. When that is complete, we are going to begin testing Quick Bid. 

We have not completed certification testing for Windows 11. Please check back regularly for updates.

Although we are unable to certify Windows 11 (or SQL 2019), there's no technical reason for the applications to not work with these Microsoft products/versions.

Windows 365 (Azure Cloud Desktop)

Windows 365 is a cloud-based virtual desktop that can run a number of versions of Windows, including Windows 10, which is technically supported. That being said...

11/15/2021 - We have not completed certification testing for Windows 365. Please check back regularly for updates.
